Defeats Rob Latimer in 2008 Special Election
With a strong show of support from across Red Hook, Democratic and Red Hook United candidate Robert McKeon defeated Republican Rob Latimer to earn a town board seat and, with it, delivered the first Democratic majority in the modern history of the Town of Red Hook.
Dozens of democrats and McKeon supporters from across Red Hook came together to celebrate his victory and the victory of other local and national Democrats on election night.
It seems to be our yearly tradition – rainy days for our Independence Day picnic. On the morning of Saturday, July 5th it seemed like the streak would remain alive. But by 10am the rain had stopped, the clouds parted shortly after noon, the sun came out and it was a beautiful day at Tivoli Rec Park. The third time was the charm!
The park was in great shape. Lots of good food and good company – some new friends and some old friends. Uncle Rock entertained the kids until the kids grabbed the microphone and began singing their own favorites. Thanks to everyone who could make it – we look forward to seeing all of you at our next event!
Honoring Supervisor Marirose Blum Bump
On May 17th, the Red Hook Democrats held our second annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner and Dance. A packed house enjoyed good food (from Cappucino’s), great music (courtesy of the Will Smith Trio) and wonderful company as we paid tribute to our former Supervisor and her many accomplishments.
Thank you to everyone who attended and pledged their support. If you have not yet sent in your pledged contribution, please use the fund drive section on the right side to send in your donation or mail it to the address at the bottom of the page.
The Red Hook Democrats showed up in droves to march together in the Hardscrabble Day parade in the leadup to the successful town board elections in November 2007!
